Announcements

The Center is delighted to announce its 2017-18 class, comprised of 37 fellows representing 26 institutions in the U.S. (19) and abroad (7).

The new class of fellows also represent a diversity of fields across or intersecting with the social and behavioral sciences: architecture, communication, economics, electrical engineering/applied physics, environmental science, history, journalism, law, linguistics, philosophy, political science, psychology, religion, sociology, and statistics.

Nineteen (51%) of the incoming fellows are female.

Several fellows will be supported by the Center’s partner fellowship programs: five by the Berggruen Philosophy + Culture Center; one by the William T. Grant Scholars Program;  and one by Presence, a center at Stanford Medical School led by National Humanities Medal recipient Dr. Abraham Verghese. The Science and Technology Policy Research and Information Center (STPI) within the National Applied Research Laboratories of Taiwan (NARLabs), a federal government agency, is sponsoring a Stanford-Taiwan Social Science fellow.

"The fellows program lies at the heart of the CASBS enterprise,” said Sally Schroeder, the Center’s associate director. “Fellows represent all that is great about this place. It’s imperative that we continue to attract the highest quality, innovative thinkers, and we’re confident we’ve reached that standard of excellence once again with the 2017-18 class.”

The fellows will be joined by a group of three visiting scholars and seven research affiliates. The list is not final, as there may be additions in the coming months. Biosketches for the 2017-18 class are now posted.

Since its inception in 1954, researchers associated with the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University have explored vexing questions and concerns. They have created and extended knowledge of our world and contributed to evidence-based policy and solutions. More than 2,500 fellows have flourished on the Center’s hilltop campus, among them luminary figures in the nation’s public and intellectual life. Kenneth Arrow, Erik Erikson, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Albert Hirschman, Daniel Kahneman, Arthur Koestler, Thomas Kuhn, Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, Robert Merton, John Rawls, Edward Said, Deborah Tannen, Amos Tversky, and Oliver Williamson are just a few examples. CASBS alumni include 25 Nobel Laureates, 23 Pulitzer Prize winners, 51 MacArthur fellows, and 26 National Medal of Science winners. Learn more at http://casbs.stanford.edu and here.
